Spearmint Leaf

Spearmint Leaf Tea has been used in a variety of products throughout the centuries. From cooking to toothpaste, cosmetics to tea, spearmint is an excellent addition to your daily routine.

Cool, minty, and refreshing spearmint can be used in many different ways. Spearmint oil is often used in beauty products. The leaf extract is found in gum and toothpaste. Mint Balm is a salve rubbed on the forehead, nose, or chest for fast relief.

Using Spearmint Tea in your dietspearmint tea

Herbs are so essential to add to your diet. They contain no calories, fat, or sodium. If you add them to a dish, try to add them at the end of cooking as heat can destroy the health benefits. Also, you want to chop them finely, don't crush them.

For a fresh burst of spearmint flavor, snap the leaf and add to drink or top a dessert. One of the best ways to add spearmint into your diet is to add it to a glass of ice water.

Try this recipe for a minty summer refresher for a twist on water:

  • 8 Oz. Water
  • 1 Sprig Spearmint - snapped
  • 1 Slice Cucumber

Health Benefits:

Spearmint contains natural antioxidants. To relieve nausea, smell a snapped leaf.  Snap the minty freshness into your next cocktail, mojito, water, or hot tea. Ingesting spearmint can help with motion sickness and eases stomach digestion. It can reduce cold symptoms and is a natural decongestant. If you rub the balm onto your forehead, it can give fast relief to ease the symptoms of a headache or allergies.

If you are one of the millions of women who suffer from facial hair, drinking spearmint leaf tea can help. Just and a snapped sprig to your next cup of hot tea.
